[image]Australia West Coast - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
This striking true-color image of the Western Australia state was compiled from data acquired by the MODIS sensor on April 5, 2002. Australia is a land known for its striking scenery - from its red deserts to its spectacular coasts to its rich agricultural regions. This image shows all three. Sensor: Terra/MODIS. Data Start Date: 4/5/02. Data End Date: 4/5/02.

[image]Flooding on the Fitzroy River, Australia - Image courtesy Jacques Descloitres, at NASA GSFC
Heavy rains in northwestern Australia earlier this week caused flooding all along the Fitzroy River and forced dozens of aboriginal people from their homes. The false-color image of the flood (top) was acquired on February 27, 2002, by the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), flying aboard NASA?s Terra spacecraft.Roughly 300 mm of rain came down in the region pictured in the image over the end of last week and this past weekend...

[image]Fires in southwestern Australia - Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
On April 2, 2004, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite passed over Western Australia and snapped this image scattered fires (marked in red). The majority of the fires are small and located away from dense vegetation (which appears deep brownish-green). This pattern, as well as the season, suggests that these are agricultural fires being set for land management purposes...

[image]Western Australia (before floods, false color) - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
The normally dry salt pan lakes of Western Australia began to fill in the wake of two tropical storms, Monty and Evan, in late February and early March 2004. Salt pan lakes form where evaporation exceeds rainfall. Such lakes typically fill seasonally, and then disappear, leaving the salty minerals that give them their name. These Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images, taken on March 1, show the northern sections of Western Australia, left, and the Northern Territory, right...

[image]Fires on Cape York Peninsula, Australia - Image by Jesse Allen, based on data from the at NASA-GSFC
North Australia has the largest and most frequent fires on the whole continent. Grasslands and tropical savannas dominate the region, flourishing during the rainy season and drying to tinderbox conditions after the rains pass. By some estimates, as much as half of the area covered by savanna woodlands, such as the Cape York Peninsula (shown at right), burns every one to two years.The most devastating fires usually occur late in the dry season, which runs from May until October...

In northwestern Australia, the Fitzroy River has a seasonal flow pattern. During the dry season, the river can consist of pools like beads on a thin string, while during the wet season, massive floods can occur. These four MODIS images show the dramatic flooding that occurred earlier this week all along the Fitzroy when 300 mm of rain came down in the region pictured in the image over the past weekend.In the images acquired on February 15, 2002, both true and false color, the river is a non-dist...

Across Australia’s “Top End” scattered fires were burning on June 5, 2006, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite passed overhead. Places where MODIS detected actively burning fires are marked in red. These relatively early dry-season fires may be intentional burns set by people to reduce the risk of catastrophic fires later in the dry season, when the savannas’ lush grasses become intensely dry and pose a severe fire risk...

On September 29, 2004, several large fires were burning across the savannas and open woodlands of Northern Territory, Australia. Areas in which MODIS detected actively burning fires are marked in red. This part of Australia is known as the “Top End,” and the region is under the predominant influence of the Northwest Monsoon, with a pounced wet and dry season. September marks the end of the dry season, a time when fires have the potential to be much more damaging to the ecosystems than they a...

This false-color image over Australia, produced using NOAA Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) data, shows where pollution from human industry reduced clouds' particle sizes. Polluted clouds may rain less frequently then unpolluted clouds because the pollutants prevent water droplets from growing large enough to precipitate.
